Three quotes, because I woke up feeling like reading about Meryl Streep:
“I want to feel my life while I’m in it.”
“The work will stand, no matter what.”
“Interestingly, young people don’t come to you for advice. Especially the ones who are related to you.”

The leather jacket goes way back in the history of fashion, music and film.
After World War II, the world witnessed a rise of a new rebellious attitude and style, especially on the American ground. It was the era of fast cars and rock’n roll.
So, there are many parks in Bucharest. It was one of the first things I loved about the place after I moved here from my Brasov almost two years ago.
Then, probably the thing I love most about Bucharest (and I’ve said this before) are the old streets and buildings.
Even though I haven’t seen all the parks and streets in the capital yet (who has, anyway?), I like walking around and staring at buildings, parks, trees, streets, doors, windows and even people.
A couple of years ago I wrote an essay on avangarde cinema, and one of the main characters was, of course, Jean-Luc Godard. His first feature film, À bout de souffle (Breathless), released in 1960, is one of the most influential examples of the Nouvelle Vague cinema (French new wave). It also marked the debut of Jean-Paul Belmondo, one of Godard’s main leading men from now on.
The film gained attention with its bold visual style, witty script and the interesting new way of using jump cuts at that time.
Take a trip back to the French 1960s and watch À bout de souffle. If only for some of these words:
- – What is your greatest ambition in life?
– To become immortal. And then die.
- I don’t know if I’m unhappy because I’m not free, or if I’m not free because I’m unhappy.
- When we talked, I talked about me, you talked about you, when we should have talked about each other.
- When the French say a second, they mean five minutes.
- Women will never do in eight seconds what they would gladly agree to do in eight days.
- You Americans are dumb. You admire Lafayette and Maurice Chevalier. They’re the dumbest of all Frenchmen.
- We’re hiding like elephants when they’re happy.
- I told you being afraid is the worst sin there is.

Am auzit-o ieri în metrou și parcă mi-a căzut un strop de cafea pe pantalonii albi.
Mă doare capul de câte ori o aud. Dar e o durere din aia, fix în mijlocul frunții.
Mă gândesc uneori de unde o fi apărut, dar în același timp chiar nu-mi doresc să aflu. Informația mi se pare prea inutilă ca s-o salvez în memorie.
